Gervonta Davis and Isaac Cruz were face to face at the press conference prior to next Sunday’s World Boxing Association (WBA) lightweight title fight at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
It was the first time that both fighters met face to face and both were confident and hungry to close the year in style.
The champion Davis said he was aware of the danger posed by his Mexican challenger, but stressed that it will help him to continue proving that he is one of the best in the category and continue his way to the top.
Cruz, for his part, was not intimidated by the occasion and said he is confident in his strength and skills to surprise on Sunday. The 23-year-old fighter has a great opportunity in front of him and wants to take advantage of it to move up to boxing’s elite.
After the meeting with the press, the only thing left to do is the weigh-in ceremony this Saturday and once they reach the 135 pounds required by the rules, they will be ready to fight for the title.
